On March 12, former Assistance Secretary of the Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts spoke as a guest on USA Watchdog. During his 50 minute interview, Dr. Roberts addressed America’s desperate need to win out over Ukraine, with their ultimate goal being the confiscation of wealth and resources, and not one of freeing the Ukrainian people.
“So, why is Ukraine important? Well, there is the Black Sea naval base that Russia has there. They have a lease on it until 2042. You have Eastern Ukraine, which is former Soviet military industrial complex . . . for Washington, they say, look we can really bring a serious strategic threat to Russia here. We can devalue their nuclear deterrent by putting anti-nuclear bases in Ukraine on their border. So, when we put pressure on them, they have to think much harder when they stand up to us because we will have the upper hand. . . . So, that’s the real reason for what they are doing. There are other economic reasons. They want to get their hands on Ukraine. They want to loot it.” -USA Watchdog
